Letters to the Editor

Many reasons to be thankful for the care center

I recently read a letter here from Phoebe and Tom who live at Vashon Community Care (VCC) (“Residents are happy here,” Nov. 13). I agree with all they wrote to you, which inspired me to write too.

I have lived here at VCC for about three months now and believe this is a great place to be as you grow older.

First off, I have benefited from the therapy department: Bob, Kristy, Jane, Carrie and Kathy. They are a very professional team who lift my spirits daily as well helping me physically. Then the nursing staff are always on alert to keep me safe and well (I would love to name each one, but there are just too many). And the activities department really puts so much energy into keeping us happy and satisfied and enjoying life. And I have to give kudos to Ben, the maintenance man. He knows this building better than anyone, but he always has time for the residents too. And Dee the laundry lady is an angel who is so conscientious and good. And we even have our own “foot fairy.”

There’s the dietary and housekeeping who we couldn’t live without and many others who keep our lives balanced, and they put in lots of hours with all the paperwork.

At this time of year to give thanks, I am very thankful for my life at Vashon Community Care.
